Sean Hoare, former reporter for the News of The World who was the whistleblower to first report that management of the paper knew about phone hacking, has been found dead in London. Hoare initially revealed himself as a phone hacker in a New York Times article in September 10. He also said he let Andy Coulson, later top aid to Prime Minister David Cameron, listen to recordings of hacked voicemails. Hoare’s cause of death is unknown at this time. He was found dead in his Waterford England home. Hoare also revealed that Coulson , when editor of the News of The World, actively encouraged him to engage in hacking. He was an entertainment reporter with the News. Last week Hoare told the New York Times that reporters at the News of the World were able to use policy technology to locate people using their mobile phone signals in exchange for payments to police officers.
